Howlin Books is becoming Elaine Howlin

YouTube Channel Art Elaine Howlin HowlinBooks book blog

Hi everyone,

As I mentioned in my last chat post, I’m rebranding my blog and the changes will be happening over the next few days. I’m going from Howlin Books to Elaine Howlin which is simply my name. The reason I’m doing this is that I want to start branching out with my content. I have a keen interest in cooking and crafting and would like to start incorporating those in my posts. I will probably begin by reviewing and trialling books on these topics to ease the transition.

My YouTube channel will remain Howlin Books and continue to focus on literature but I will be launching a second channel that focuses on all of the above topics under Elaine Howlin in the coming weeks.

I’ve been so torn about what to do with my YouTube channel. I would like to keep it book focused but two channels sound like a lot of work to maintain. I may change it to Elaine Howlin Books…..or does that sound way too silly?….

Anyway, expect to see more variety in this blog over the next few weeks and a new design. I’m going for earth tones and a vintage feel in the future.

I hope you enjoy the new content when it comes out 🙂 Thank you for your interest in what I’ve been doing so far and if you’re new here, thanks for following!

Chat again soon!

Chit Chat: Blog Rebranding | Florida Trip

Hi everyone!

My husband and I are in Florida for the next 10 days. As you read this I am probably running around Disney World like a child hopped up on too much sugar. I have been so excited about this trip mostly because of the Harry Potter attractions in Universal. We’re also spending a few days in Jacksonville. My husband is a big fan of American football and his team is the Jaguars so he’s established a few friendships there over Twitter.

We’re also going to to see Infinity Wars while there. I am so freaking excited to watch that freaking movie!!!!!!! Every time I watch the trailer I swear I get goosebumps!

In blog-related news, I am going to be rebranding this blog, my YouTube and social media accounts over the next few weeks. All that’s happening is that I am changing the name Howlin Books to my actual name Elaine Howlin. I’m doing this because I want to branch out more with the type of content I post. I want to include more posts relating to food, cookbooks, and crafting. Essentially the blog will become more of a hobbyist page than specifically about books.

That’s all the news I have for now. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend and thank you for reading 🙂

Talk soon, everyone!!
